CoMo/Al2O3 catalyst prepared by impregnation of alumina support with cobalt heteropolyoxomolybdate was tested in hydrodesulfurization (HDS) of thiophene, 1-benzothiophene, or light gas oil under various reaction conditions and reactor arrangements. Its physicochemical properties are also examined. The obtained data are compared with those of two industrial HDS catalysts.

Keywords: CoMo/Al2O3; Co heteropolyoxomolybdate; HDS.
